Many companies have found themselves having to adapt to stay in business during the COVID-19 pandemic.
One New Jersey-based company was mostly focused on killing bugs, has now found itself hoping to kill the virus. Form its Mahwah warehouse, Vectornate USA reaches almost 70 counties selling foggers to exterminators and developing nations desperate to kill insects to ward off diseases.
Not the company is using the foggers to spray disinfectants.
“When we spray it here, it will stay airborne for half an hour, for 40 minutes and it will reach everywhere,” says CEO Peter Slipenchuk.
The company says that they hope governments, schools and small businesses will use their foggers to disinfect. The company recently made a sale to Woodbridge so that the town could clean buses.
Another New Jersey company is also changing up how it does business. Absolute Green founder Karen Halo is now making hand sanitizer.
“I have to call somebody, ‘Did you get it yet? Did you get it yet?’ So, it’s kind of like I’m a day trader, but I’m doing it with supplies and inventory and ingredients I need,” Halo says.
There is a shortage of plastic and sprayers. But Halo says that she can figure it out. Her Absolute Green line of cleaning projects is sold in stores like Whole Foods and TJ Maxx. She sells “softer” cleaning products.
“And I got asthma from everything I put in the house, flooring, carpet cleaning products,” she says.
